Let's start with your third pic: the center thing is your fuel float level (and gauge) - don't worry about that. That's not hooked up to your carbs at all. The three arrows on the lower item are pointing to the petcock - the left and right leads are your fuel lines. You should have 1/4" ID hose, one from each lead to the fuel connector on the carb itself. The center port is the vacuum line from the petcock to your front carb - 3/16" ID hose from that center line to the brass nipple on the front carb. (That's three hoses...) On the rear carb, you also have a vacuum line - goes from the brass nipple back to the exhaust cannister that sits right behind your gas tank/in front of the battery (that's four). And then you should have a t-fitting between both carbs for the vent hose - 1/4" hose from each carb to the fiiting (five and five and a half), and then there's a vent hose that goes out to your right air box (the vent hose is really #5 - think of the ones going into the t-fitting as feeder hoses).

Does that help at all?

You can replace the Main jets, with the carbs on the bike. I just did it last week. The tough part was getting the fuel bowl covers off. I didn't have a screw driver that would fit under the carbs so I used a set of needle nose pliers on the the 4 phillips head screws(2 for each carb) and when it came time to install the covers, I replaced them with M4 x 14 socket head cap screws.

I used a small mirror and flashlight to verify the location of the jets. For the main jets use a standard short 8mm 1/4" drive socket and ratchet then take out the main jet holder(kawasaki's name for it). The jet is then easy to remove from the jet holder and replace.

Check the air bleeds in the jet holder to make sure their open and clean.

Just reassemble in reverse order. I started the jet holder with my fingers to make sure I didn't cross thread it.
It sure was easier to tighten the cap screws with an allen wrench instead of using pliers.

It's easier to work on the front carb if you remove the ACCT.

Hi Cindy,

I'm a new member of VN750, having bought a neglected '85 VN700 a few weeks ago. I bought the bike as a near-basket case that would barely run. I traced the problem down to the carbs (spark & compression was fine), and discovered that the fuel lines were set-up incorrectly - the lines from the petcocks ran directly to the vacuum lines! (primitive direct injection? LOL!). Anyway, using the excellent labelled pictures you've provided the forum, I was able to reorganize the fuel & carb vent lines to their correct locations/destinations... the bike now starts & runs fairly well... I just don't know what to do with the vacuum fittings on each carb.... any suggestions on how to rout them and to where?)... any help from you or any other forum members would be greatly appreciated!

Best Regards to All,

Rob (SpockRob)
